Celebrity Big Brother 2017 is coming and the start date has been CONFIRMED!

The new series kicks off on Tuesday, January 3.

This week saw Channel 5 announce a brand new Celebrity Big Brother series for next month, which will have an All Stars twist.

The news came alongside the revealing of a brand new pop art themed eye, made up of numerous stars.


"Celebrity Big Brother is back with a bang to brighten up your January with a starry celebration of colour!" said Channel 5.

Host Emma Willis will be at the spectacular live launch to revealed which famous faces will be entering the iconic house, with Channel 5 saying the show will return "early January".

When does Celebrity Big Brother begin on TV?

The show typically launches in the first week of the month and that's no different in 2017, with the show now confirmed for Tuesday, January 3.

Hosted Emma Willis tweeted tonight: "#CBB is nearly BACK! 🙌🙌🙌 Join us for the Live @bbuk launch on Tuesday 3rd Jan at 9pm on @channel5_tv… Pop Goes January!!"

Meanwhile, Channel 5 have confirmed rumours that this year's Strictly will see some of viewers' favourites CBB housemates back in the house.


But that's not all: the All Stars will be joined by a bunch of brand new celebrity housemates: the New Stars. Together they’ll be living in the Big Brother house which has been given a colourful pop art makeover, matching the new look eye.

There's been lots of rumours about the Celebrity Big Brother 2017 line up but Channel 5 said yesterday: "As always the identities of the housemates are top secret, but we can confirm that this series promises to be an explosion of fun and loud personalities which are sure to cause fireworks… in fact, everything you love about Celebrity Big Brother!"

Celebrity Big Brother 2017 starts in January on Channel 5 alongside spin-off show Celebrity Big Brother’s Bit On the Side which returns weeknights with Rylan Clark-Neal.
